Linwood’s Capital Campaign
Building an Extraordinary Future Together
Linwood Center has been in the forefront of efforts to address the needs of the autism community for nearly 60 years. Today our programs are more necessary than ever, but the building that houses those programs is no longer adequate.
To meet the ever-growing demand for our services, in September, we broke ground on a new $6.5 million school. The 36,000 square foot building will allow us to increase the number of children we serve by accepting kindergarten to 12th grade students with less severe forms of autism.
Our new building will house a state-of-the-art educational program, including dedicated areas for multi-sensory environments, computer labs, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy and fine arts.
In addition to the core subject areas, students will learn adaptive daily living skills, community-based skills, recreation and leisure, and other functional life skills. The expansion will provide separate areas for elementary, middle and high school students.
With the new building, we’ll be able to provide a wide variety of much needed inclusive educational opportunities for students from Howard County and elsewhere in the state.
You Can Help
We need both public and private resources to help the skyrocketing number of children living with autism who need our services. Our new school has received local, state and federal support. But we also need the help of civic, faith and other groups and individuals through donations to our capital campaign.
We offer a range of levels of giving and naming opportunities to recognize the generosity of donors. Together we can build an extraordinary future for children and adults living with autism.
